|Hogarth Flyover Works Extended|
TfL say road surface was in a poorer condition than expected
Although it will come as no surprise to motorists who use the road regularly, work by Transport for London to re-surface the Hogarth Flyover has revealed that the flyover was in a poorer condition than they had expected.
The removal of the surface of the single lane flyover showed greater damage to the concrete deck than was expected. This has had an impact on the programme for these works which began on June 9th and means additional works will be required before a new road surface can be laid.
As a result, the flyover will need to be closed for an additional 14 days.
A frustrated Chiswick resident said, "They are working office hours plus one night so not much to show for eight days work. Weeds still growing out of the road and around the flyover, cracks in the concrete plus the bollards have not been replaced etc."
"We have all been suffering bad traffic but they are not doing a good job," he added.
While the flyover remains closed, eastbound traffic will need to use the Hogarth Lane roundabout to move onto the Great West Road.
TfL say that the works will be carried out day and night (24/7) so they can get the flyover back into service as quickly as possible.
Works are now expected to be complete by the 6th July 2010.
TfL have apologise in advance for any inconvenience that these continuing works may cause. Should you require further information or an update during the delivery of these works please contact our Streets Customer Services department on 0845 305 1234 or via www.tfl.gov.uk/contact
